Baldrige Performance Excellence provides leaders and organizations with an internationally recognized framework to help improve and achieve sustainable results in organizations of any size and within any industry. https://nist.gov/baldrige
The Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award is the only formal recognition of performance excellence in both public and private U.S. organizations awarded by the President of the United States.
The event will feature nationally recognized speakers speaking on topics including:
ABOUT THIS CONFERENCE
Day One: Advanced Fetal Monitoring
Morning Session: Join Lisa Miller for an interactive session that includes a self-assessment, physiology based FHR interpretation and standardized tracing management as well as cord gas analysis and uterine acid-base. Labor curves, the ARRIVE trial, and NTSV management considerations will also be covered.
Afternoon Session: Learn a simplified approach to EFM interpretation & management that is evidence- and consensus-based. Review algorithms for Category II management and discuss individualization of intrapartum care. Work collaboratively on an FHR tracings practicum (you will be able to keep the tracings) which will then be reviewed with all participants. As always, the program will include the most recent evidence available.
Day Two: Documentation & Legal Issues
Morning Session: Join Becky Cypher for an in-depth review of all things documentation. Whether you are a nurse, midwife, physician or risk manager, learn the most important principles of documentation and record-keeping, including real-life examples of both success and failure, from one of the top medico-legal experts in the country.
Afternoon Session: Becky is joined by Lisa Miller for an afternoon of case studies, a review of common medico-legal theories, and a deposition survival guide invaluable for your cache of knowledge.
At the end of this educational activity, participants will be able to:
• Practice application of NICHD definitions through self-assessment
• Identify key concepts regarding the 2008 NICHD workshop report
• Review fetal-uteroplacental physiology and the impact on fetal oxygenation
• Describe labor effects on uterine muscle acid-base
• Recognize complex factors influencing the oxygenation pathway in EFM
• Apply a standardized, consensus-based approach to EFM management
• Describe frequent errors/allegations related to obstetric liability
• Explain physiologic rationale and research for corrective measures used in Cat II/III tracings
• Discuss complex case studies including second stage, signal ambiguity, and EFM
interpretation & management
• Report key findings of the ARRIVE trial/related studies
• Restate four elements of an EFM liability claim
• Summarize important elements of intrapartum EFM documentation

The implementation of PDPM on October 1, 2019 has come and gone; however, the complexities continue. With the largest change in skilled nursing facility (SNF) Medicare Part A reimbursement since 1998, we expected challenges with implementation and we were not disappointed. Questions continue related to skilled level of care, primary diagnosis, case mix components and billing….to name a few.
This all-day training session will cover all components that are used to establish the SNF Medicare Part A rate, as well as focus on areas related to frequently asked questions over the initial months of implementation.
This interactive session will include key components listed above and how your facility can focus on key areas impacting compliance and reimbursement.
This continuing nursing education activity was approved by the Pennsylvania State Nurses Association Approver Unit, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
These nursing credits are approved by ANCC and can be used in Hawaii.
